  1. Heat pan on medium high, add 3 tablespoons of water along with the sugar. Boil for a few minutes till you have the consistency of a single thread. Test between your fingers, it should form a single thread when the fingers are pulled apart.
  2. Turn the heat down to medium low. Add the unsalted butter then stir till the butter melts.
  3. Add the milk powder and cardamom powder, mix well and keep on stirring til the mixture becomes thick like cake-batter, then take it off the stove and keep it aside to cool for 1 hour.
  4. As the batter thickens, make 2 inch balls and lightly press in the middle to form a small crater.
  5. Garnish with chopped nuts.
